Hi! I have Asus m2n-vm hdmi motherboard, about month ago i've got problem: if computer works more than 12 hours, it freezes and works normally just after few hours "rest". Also, after shutdown...

Hi lvadim1993,
In other word your PC works intermittently. Here is what you have to do. Check and remove the processor cooling fan and heat sink clean the cooling fan and heat sink. If you have a thermal compound remove the old thermal compound and put a little amount at the center of the heat sink. Reinstall it back the processor cooling fan and heat sink and make sure It install properly even and snag tight. re plug in the cooling fan connector to the motherboard. If you have a video card remove and clean the video card connector and the cooling fan and heat sink with air blower same also to the memory card. Use the air blower to clean the motherboard and the entire internal of the PC. Reinstall the video card and the memory card and make sure that they are install properly. replug in the video cable and the pc power cord and turn on the PC. this will work. the computer is just over heating. I hope that this information will help you solve the problem.

Lights come on and off for a couple seconds but computer won't power up

Just the LED's blinking but can you hear the fan on the processor run? If not most likely your power supply, SMPS, has failed. However try starting it with a working one of the same capacity to check and then buy your own. However if your PC shows no change on using a working SMPS, the the problem could lie in the RAM sticks or MB...............sodeep

CPU not boot up

First of all what exactly do you mean by "changed the CPU"? If its the processor? Is only the display not working, since you have said that the fan runs, it means the PC is starting. Check the Keyboard & mouse PS2 jacks. If there is any bent pins in the jacks? If so gently straighten with a pair of tweezers. Also try using a working Keyboard & Mouse from any other PC. If that still does not work, do you see the led lighting up on the MB? Does the MB make beeping sounds? How many? ALso mention the processor you have so that we may be able to help...............sodeep

Power off issue for GX280

just run scandisk for your windows driver and check for any errors.

i once got this problem i just ran scandisk and some errors are found in the filesystem and they were removed
after that i have no prob shutting down my pc.

and if possible try to run a virus scan like avast or avg. etc.., this could take long if you have a monster harddrive and data.

hope this helps..

No Sound


A couple of things you can try:
1. Verify that there are no yellow or red markings in your Sound, video and game controllers in the Device Manager;
2. try with a different known good set of speakers or even a headset;
3. reset your CMOS/BIOS on your motherboard. (This would be the jumper very near the Lithium back-up battery.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.
